Historical hamam opens in Guba after restoration

The opening of Gumbazli Hamam, a unique historical monument, which had been restored with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Azerbaijan, was held in Guba district on March 26.  

 

The restoration of the historical monument was funded by the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) in coordination with Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism

 

Addressing the opening ceremony, Ziyaddin Aliyev, head of the Guba District Executive Authority, said that Guba has historical cultural and multicultural roots. He noted that such monuments are restored and will be restored in order to preserve these values for future generations. 

 

Minister of Culture and Tourism Abulfas Garayev said that all historical monuments are preserved in Azerbaijan.

 

Azerbaijan has always been loyal to multicultural traditions, the minister noted. 

 

U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta said that the ambassadors should strengthen not only the relations among countries, but also the relations among peoples: “One of the most beautiful ties is established via culture. History brings together all of us. Many forces try to separate peoples from one another. Tolerance in Azerbaijan is an example for several counties. The project has started since March 2014. After restoration, it will be put into use as a place to support local economic development. Restoration of the historical hamam will be a symbol of friendship between our countries”.

 

Gumbazli Hamam was built in the 19th century and operated until the 1980s.
